conjuring // other planes of there
curated by adé and members of Durham Artists Movement
On View February 15 – 26, 2017
“conjuring // other planes of there is a multimedia installation experience through Black and Brown radical imaginations and dream power. it is a living archive of the power we wield to actualize. this installation experience is heavily inspired by the fabulist and prophetic works and eternal cosmic energies of Harriet Tubman, Sun Ra, Isabelle Allende, Henry Dumas, Mae Carol Jemison, and Octavia Butler and so many more who astrally projected themselves and their people into freedom. into liberated states of being.”
